(Some of them really bad/blurry phone photos)
As you can imagine, we've had quite the few months... yes, excitement and sickness. But I've also made a lot of food. And not just for myself, either. And I've managed a couple of projects, sewing and DIY. Plus family stuff. And everyday life stuff. Well, you know, you've been there. So, here we go. 3-ish/4-ish months of photos just for you...
bug had crazy hair day at school, and mini insisted on crazy hair, too. They went around the whole day looking like this:
And then it blizzarded. Again.
There was a bit of melancholy.
But we made up for it with cute legwarmers. Plus I documented a few of mini's more extravagant outfits. That she picked herself.
I made a delicious green drink for St. Patrick's day. Then I made it again. And again. And I may have made it one more time. You can find the "Shamrock Juice" recipe here.
Speaking of things I love, I also documented some crazy cravings... when I could keep anything down, this is what it was.
But even more exciting, we went to the circus! The kids loved it.
And then my five year old beat me at wii bowling.
how does that happen??
After all the blizzarding, we were very excited to find our first nest in March, right outside our door.
And mini decided she loved dancing. (Thanks Grandma and Grandpa for the dance clothes!)
I got a pedicure and took in some theatre (and ate some really delicious food, which I don't have photos of) while visiting my bff, El.
I gave myself a haircut. More like a trim, but I thought I did pretty well.
AND I started my search for the perfect red.
I did actually do some real cooking (like I said before)
|all food to be discussed in detail in their own posts.|
and when the sun finally broke for real, we went to the park again
And then, it snowed! In April!
He loved it. He requested eggrolls for dinner - I was happy to oblige - and we both loved the music and the acting. The costumes and puppetry was really cool. Afterwards, bug got to meet one of his favorite characters in the lobby, Timon! (I asked if I could take their picture and the guy said "I have to say no if you ask me, but I can't help it if you sneak a shot in while we're talking!")
I was in charge of a family history lesson/craft for a bazillion girls at my church. They really seemed to like it, and I'm planning on sharing the idea here later.
Oh, and guess what happened then? It snowed. In May.
And I shared this bump photo on instagram: (yes, a sweater, in May!)
It finally warmed up enough to visit the beach here in town:
though the water was frigid.
We had a bike race,
played Candyland, (why is that game sooooo loooooong???)
I made multiple to-do lists:
which have now been swapped out with what I call the "Before Baby List":
(it's long. Like 4 pages long. Two columns. Plus extras.)
bug "graduated" from 4K,
and announced his devotion to his very first "girlfriend".
The kids started (and already finished) their first ever swim lessons
and bug worked up the guts to jump off the diving board after his last lesson.
We accidentally let the kids swim in algae. It was pretty gross. EWWWWW.
We watched some sunsets:
did some baking:
mr did a whole ton of yard work. Ton. Like redid the entire backyard. More pictures forthcoming.
We've used the backyard for a lot of sprinkler fun since it warmed up the past two-ish weeks. June was cold. I think we may have finally hit summer though!
We got our house painted!
And re-arranged. But it's not quite done yet.
You may also be interested in this... mr baked a cake. With a surprise inside.
It's a boy!
